"Every day about dusk, Charlie disappears. I guess he just needs to get away for a while." Phyllis spoke, not really to Martie, her visitor. She halfwhispered it to the windowpane, half to herself. "You want some cinnamon toast, Martie?" she asked. Sure, Martie would have some. Absently, Phyllis picked up her thoughts and placed them at random around the tiny kitchen.
"He keeps more and more to himself since Eddie died," she said into the breadbox, pulling out the loaf. "He clammed up and wouldn't talk for days on end," she spoke softly to the butter dish.
Cricket songs filled the quiet spaces Phyllis left while she was thinking about what to say next. Cicadas high up in the elms sawed into the summer air, somehow dividing earth from sky. "I asked him once where it was he went every day. He just said it was no place special." She spoke, staring into the red strawberry shaped sugar bowl. Dusting the browned toast with cinnamon, she sighed into her hands. "I know he hurts, but he won't admit it."
A tear slid silently down Phyllis' rough, tanned cheek. "I guess he thinks I don't hurt, because I don't let on." She tried to take a bite of toast, but the salty rush had begun. Tears glistened on her face, but not a sound did she make. Martie reached over and touched her friend's arm. Phyllis wiped her cheek and blew her nose. End of feeling sorry for herself, right now! "Neither of us lets on," she whispered. "That's just the way we are."
Eddie had come to Charlie and Phyllis when they were in their forties, a squawling Isaacchild. He brought spark into the old farmhouse and life to the dreary rooms. They became young again, at least in their hearts. The day Eddie drowned in the canal uptown, nobody blamed Charlie except himself. You know how kids are, they The Paper - 760.747.7119
all said. Get away before you turn around. Charlie had taken him uptown to chat with the boys at the feed store. A stoney faced Charlie returned home without his three-yearold joy and all the spark went out for good.
Every night now since the funeral, Charlie went out alone to the pea size, wind swept cemetery to watch the stars come up in the deep Illinois sky. "That bright one, up so high, that's you, Eddie. The brightest of all. The best." And, he wept his own silent weeping, not even hearing himself. He'd go home then to the still form of his wife and they would lie there, back to back, both dying inside for want of comfort. More dead than Eddie, in a lot of ways.
When Phyllis first got the notion to follow Charlie, she mused, "I'll just stay far enough behind so he won't see me." That same morning, Charlie had gone uptown to listen to the news of the day. It turned
out to be the same old chatter and he grew restless. He decided to stroll down the main drag. Before long, he stopped at the window of the five and dime. He stopped beside two small children and a young mother, plainly dressed. "We just don't have money for toys today, honeys. Maybe another time." All three of them stared into the window filled with story books, pinwheels, dolls and other toys. A sudden burst of compassion pushed Charlie closer. "Which one of them jack-dazzles do you like best?" he asked. They were all startled, even Charlie himself. "Beg pardon, Ma'am. I don't mean any harm."
"I like the pinwheels," piped up the girl. "Kenny likes them too!" Before the mother could protest, he went in and bought the two brightest pinwheels in the place. The girl was delighted, and blew little puffs of air at hers to set it spinning. The boy turned away and refused his. "He doesn't play much with toys," said the mother. "Just lives there in his own world. But, thanks very much,
The Healing Continued on Page 2
"Thanks very much, anyway," echoed the little girl. Charlie walked away with the pinwheel spinning in his big, rough hand.
That night, he had walked a long way before Phyllis guessed his destination. Watching him approach the cemetery, she felt remorse. The one time she'd been out there was on Memorial Day, and it nearly killed her to do that. Now, she gazed in silence as Charlie sat staring into the endless sky, that Great God's galaxy, where someday we might all go and join Eddie in the stars. After a few minutes, Charlie opened a paper sack and pulled out the shiny object. He blew puffs of air into it, then placed it in front of Eddie's stone. "Eddie," he murmured, "This here jim-crack is for you. You would have liked it if..." His voice began to trail away. He watched the pinwheel dancing in its own joyous way. Then he

did something he had never done, not even when they buried his boy. Behind him, Phyllis sat hidden in the darkness and saw her man let go and cry like a baby. She walked quietly away and hurried to get home before Charlie returned. He came back a full hour later and it took him a long while to find sleep. The next evening when Charlie got back from fence mending, he washed up at the pump and stepped into the warm kitchen. Phyllis was nowhere around. She had left a note on the table, next to a fire-engine red toy car. The note read, "Give this to Eddie, from me. Phyllis." She knew! He didn't know how she knew, but what an immense feeling of relief washed over him. She knew!
That evening as he returned to the north rise cemetery, he walked briskly. Clutching the lttle red car all the way, he almost ran to the stone. He studied the angel carved in the smooth granite, the clouds and dogwood blossoms framing his boy's name. "Eddie, this is for you, from your mother," Speaking aloud he said. "She misses you just as much as I do, maybe more."
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Wrong E-Mail Address
A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!
A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife.
He talked at length to the stone, the pinwheel, the car, then rising, said goodnight to them all. He opened the creaking screen door and tiptoed upstairs. He undressed and slipped into his side of the bed. Sensing that Phyllis was awake, he could almost see her smiling in the dark. He spoke softly, staring wide-eyed at his side of the room. "Phyllis?"
A small silence, and then, "Yes, Charlie?"
He timidly mustered the next words. "Tomorrow night would you like to walk out to see Eddie with me?" "I believe I would. I'd like that very much, Charlie," she whispered. Eddie's star winked out there somewhere. The healing had begun. Editor’s Note: You’ll find more of Barbara Miller’s writings on page three of this week’s edition.

However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the e-mail. Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a Baptist minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted.
The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read: To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived Date: July 21, 2014
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I've seen that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P. S. Sure is freaking hot down here! ••••• An engineer dies and presents himself at the Pearly Gates.
The young man shrugs: 'Sir , I believe she's filing her fingernails.'
It doesn't take long before the engineer becomes rather dissatisfied with the level of comfort in Hell.
The trooper asks: 'What's your age, young man?'
Saint Peter checks his dossier and, not seeing his name there, accidentally sends him to Hell.
He soon begins to design and build improvements. Shortly thereafter, Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. Needless to say, the engineer is a pretty popular guy. One day, God calls Satan and says: "So, how are things in Hell?"
Satan replies: "Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning, flush toilets, and escalators. And there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."
"What!" God exclaims: "You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have been sent to Hell. Send him to me." "Not a chance," Satan replies: "I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him!"
God insists: "Send him back or I'll sue."
Satan laughs uproariously and answers: "Yeah, right. And where are you going to get a lawyer? ••••• A State Trooper was patrolling late at night off the main highway.
Now, the trooper is totally confused. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a lover's lane and nothing obscene is happening! The young man says: 'I'm 22, sir.' The trooper asks: 'And her, what's her age?'
The young man looks at his watch and replies: 'She'll be 18 in 11 minutes.' ••••• Silvio, an 80-year-old Italian goes to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, 'how do you stay in such great physical condition?' “I'm Italian and I am a golfer,”says Silvio, 'and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and all is well.'
"'Well,” says the doctor, 'I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to it. How old was your Father when he died?' 'Who said my Father's dead?'
The doctor is amazed. 'You mean you're 80 years old and your Father's still alive. How old is he?'
'He's 100 years old,' says Silvio. 'In fact he golfed with me this morning, and then we went to the topless beach for a walk and had a little vino and that's why he's still alive. He's Italian and he's a golfer, too.'
At nearly midnight, he sees a couple in a car, in lovers' lane, with the interior light brightly glowing. He carefully approaches the car to get a closer look. Then he sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine.
'Well,' the doctor says, 'that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it than that. How about your Father's Father? How old was he when he died?'
Puzzled by this surprising situation, the trooper walks to the car and gently raps on the driver's window.
'He's 118 years old,' says the old Italian golfer.
He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, filing her fingernails.
The young man lowers his window. 'Uh, yes, Officer'? The trooper asks: 'What are you doing?' The young man says: 'Well, Officer, I'm reading a magazine.'
Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the trooper says: 'And, her, what is she doing?'
'Who said my Nonno's dead?'
Stunned, the doctor asks, 'you mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's still living! Incredible, how old is he?' The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, 'So, I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?' 'No, Nonno couldn't go this morning because he's getting married today.'
At this point the doctor is close to losing it. 'Getting married? Why would a 118 year- old guy

Traditionally, that point in time when a writer hits a brick wall while searching out story ideas or story plots. In our case, however, it’s that occasional break when we take a few moments to relax and enjoy the writing talents of some of those who contribute to The Paper. Yes, Virginia, There IS A Great Pumpkin
I am 82 years old. Some of my Bingo friends say there is no Great Pumpkin. But others say, "If you see it in The Paper, it has to be so." So I'm asking. Please tell me the truth - is there a Great Pumpkin? Sincerely, Virginia
Your Bingo friends are wrong. They have been affected by too many medications. They think that nothing can be real unless it is seen on CNN, the internet or one of the major networks. Their finite minds cannot grasp the merest concept of the importance of the Great Pumpkin.
Yes, Virginia, there IS a Great Pumpkin! He exists as certainly as love and generosity and little red apples exist. Alas, how dreary would be North County if there were no Great Pumpkin. You might take Bingo, Shuffleboard and Pickleball all away and life as we know it would go on. But, remove the Great Pumpkin and the eternal light which fills the world would be extinguished. Shazam! Kapoot! Not believe in the Great Pumpkin! Pshaw! You may as well not believe in the stock market or banking industry. Oh, your friends may send any number of patrol officers to look for him, but even if they did not see him, what would that prove? Did you ever see reindeer flying through the sky (except for after that one New Year's Eve party when someone laced the chocolate fountain)? Of course not, but that is no proof they are not there.
There is a veil covering the unseen world, cataracts aside, which not even the strongest person can tear apart. Only faith, fancy and perhaps the spiked fountain can push aside that curtain to the Great Pumpkin's beautiful visage.
No Great Pumpkin? Thanks to Charlie Brown and the downtown Farmer's Market he lives forever! A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay ten thousand times ten thousand, he
will continue to make glad the heart of believers all over the world. So, three cheers for that supreme squash, and please pass the chocolate! Kind Regards, Your Editor Barbara Miller
The Desert and Other Anomalies
Let me apologize right now to those folks out there who adore the desert, underwhelmed as I was when we drove to see it in March. Cutting the desert some slack, I thought, “perhaps it is downright flamboyant compared to the usual drab.”
The most colorful flowers I saw were at the Visitor's Center in a wildly ambitious representation of the blooming desert floor. I think it was a photo of a painting. What we actually saw were mostly delicate stems supporting dainty yellow heads and random clumps of something purple. The amazing irony of the whole trip was seeing nature lovers walking on huge acreages of these once a year delicacies, stomping the living daylights out of the little beauties they had come to revere. They came, they saw, they trod.
From a film at the Visitor's Center we learned the story of Marshal South, who inhabited a place called Ghost Mountain for some 14-20 odd years. And I do mean Odd. He apparently walked around in a loin cloth which left little to the imagination (and this is a family film). He and his wife (Me, Marshal you, Jane) toted water over rocks, cactus, etc. for a mile, uphill both ways. He built his own adobe house, because you couldn't get a triple-wide up the mountain, I guess. I looked up Ghost Mountain on the net and found a more detailed, if not contradictory, account of the Souths. I learned that the mescal plant was part of everything they did. In addition to providing fuel, mescal furnished footwear, cordage, clothing, food, drink, sugar, alcohol, vinegar, paper and soap. They also used it as brooms, paintbrushes, curtain rods, table legs and even napkin rings. Toilet paper? Let's not go there.
He made money by selling articles about the desert life. He celebrated their good fortune that "here on Ghost Mountain, it is with malicious satisfaction that we hug to our bosoms the knowledge that the greedy hand of Commercialism is not likely to reach to these regions." I assume that mescal was not a hot commodity at the time. Apart from mescal, who knows what they ate, but it gave the little wife enough energy to produce three healthy kids, who lived to be old enough to reside at a retirement com-
mune if they wished. After the couple separated (big surprise), Marshal himself, moved into the Agua Caliente metropolis and died at the age of 59, or 62 ... a mere child compared to some of our people here. Living on Ghost Mountain afforded him the opportunity to give up shirts and ties and grow really long facial hair, some of which is probably still snagged on a cactus out there.
By the mid-1940s, thanks to their monthly appearances in Desert Magazine, the South Family was becoming an early, desert version of the Truman Show. Many readers wrote to both the Souths and to Desert Magazine expressing their admiration, outrage, encouragement, curiosity and sometimes concern for the South children being raised in a home that had turned its back on modern civilization.
"Most letters are from kindred souls," Marshal wrote in 1944, "who also feel the restless urge towards freedom and simplicity of living which is today tugging at the hearts of so many of the human race." "If it be our personal conviction that what 'Civilization' needs is not more softness and ease but more simplicity and nearness to the earth and fundamental things, then we are not alone."
A great irony is that on the side-bar of this article on South was an ad for “Sleep Number RV beds, pillow top, short queen and regular queen sizes”. My County Fair Lady
One year, against any judgment whatsoever, I gave in to my husband and went to the San Diego County Fair. My man loves fairs, parades and
chasing fire engines; anything involving sweaty crowds, blaring noise and possible danger.
Not that I have anything in particular against fairs, just everything in general. I have been to my share of fairs already. The Ohio State Fair is indelibly inscribed in my memory. I grew up practically on its back doorstep, not that far from the livestock buildings, in fact. That can do things to the olfactory senses of a city girl. So now, skirting the cattle pens in Del Mar, I held my breath. Plus, reading the signs warning us that cattle may kick our brains out doesn't add to any bucolic nostalgia I might have left buried at my grandpa's farm. Another sign admonished us not to climb on the cattle. Seriously. As if that were the first thing to come to mind when a person is staring at the rear view of a 3,000 pound animal. However, it must have happened enough times that the warning was necessary. One shudders to think. There should have been other warning signs too. Do not eat here would be good for starters. Any food item I saw was in the yellow color family, and deep fried. Smart persons would disregard the signs that forbid the bringing of food into the fair grounds. A ticking grenade would cause less damage to the general population than most of the food offered at the fair. Still, I ate. Deep fried steak strip ( leather ), french fries, battered onion rings, fried zucchini (at least the skin was green). Even the funnel cake is yellow-ish and fried! Among the exhibits we saw

Man About Town
Because of the nature of our work we visit a lot of restaurants. We get to know the better ones . . . and those are the ones we tell you about.
One of our correspondents, Aubrey Stewart, knows we like oatmeal. Recently, he sent me an email that was so tempting we followed up with a visit to the restaurant, Home Sweet Home, located in the commercial/industrial district of Escondido at 662 Enterprise, phone 760.743.2233.
“I tried their Oatmeal---It is far and away the Very Best I have found. Fabulous! $4.00 for a bowl (not a small sized bowl). Excellent quality plus: Brown Sugar (not a small container-I used half of it). Raisins (not a

The interior has marvelous décor and there is a "meeting room." Hopefully you can try it sometime and include comments about it in Man About Town.”
Well, we did. Evelyn and I went there a week ago Saturday and had to wait about eight minutes to be seated, it was that busy. Weekends are very busy and we noticed a large family-type patronage (during the week, it’s not quite as busy and enjoys the patronage of a lot of the folks who work within the commercial industrial area). We both had a large bowl of oatmeal, Evelyn had a large blueberry muffin, I had one egg and one slice of toast. Very filling, very satisfying. We spoke with Lisa Coast, the owner. She had purchased the
And so it begins.
The Election Season is officially underway now that the deadline for filing papers for candidacy has come and gone.
Probably the most hotly contested races will be those in Escondido and, of those, the hottest race is most likely that of the chase for the Mayor’s Chair, presently occupied by Hizzoner, Sam Abed.
Abed has a commanding lead in money raised . . . but Diaz is known for hard work in the precincts and putting together an effective campaign team.
Both candidates claim polls show them in the lead. Abed at one time told me his polls showed him 20% ahead of Diaz. I asked him to show me the poll and he declined, saying it was taken by a third
business about five or six years ago. At that time it was a failing restaurant. Lisa, essentially, built it from scratch and word has gotten out that it is a super cafe/restaurant.
We agree. Give it a try, but expect a wait on Saturday and Sunday mornings. ••••• Another restaurant we enjoy and visit quite often is China Bistro, 1330 E. Valley Parkway, Escondido, 760.741.0330. One reason we enjoy the China Bistro so much, aside from the delicious food, is . . . it’s so quiet. It’s a perfect place to hold a business meeting.
You don’t have to shout to have your dining companion(s) hear you. A very calm, relaxing atmosphere. Hard to carry on a business discussion at some restaurants because of the noise factor.
I often order the Sweet and Sour Pork . . . just because I like the way they prepare it. (Yes, I know Sweet and Sour Pork is not a traditional Chinese food . . . that it is a dish designed to please the American palate . . . but that’s also true of Chop Suey.) Evelyn often has the Almond or Cashew Chicken. Both dishes always come with rice, salad, noodles, and a cup of egg
party and they chose to not disclose it
In an earlier poll, conducted by Diaz, she showed a 9% lead over Abed. She had the poll done a second time to ensure there wasn’t some polling error. Same results. However, during that poll former Chief of Police Jim Maher was a factor. He has now officially declared he will not run for election for Mayor or any other city position. Unlike Abed, Deputy Mayor Diaz shared her polls with me, both questions, answers, and the math used to calculate the results. I tend to give more credence to polls I can see and examine than polls that are cited but not offered for examination.
So, I, like you, will be a most interested observer in the upcoming campaign. We will be interviewing select candidates for their views and we will be endorsing candidates, but probably a bit closer to the election on November 4th. We want to give the candidates plenty of time before we interview them for purposes of determining who we’ll endorse.
A lot can happen between now and November 4th. Stay tuned.
drop soup, hot and sour soup, or won-ton soup.
Prices are very reasonable. ••••• Back to the breakfast scene: Hard to beat the breakfast offered by Westside Cafe’s Early Bird Special. $3.99 for either a waffle, egg, and bacon, or two pancakes, egg and bacon. They also have $4.99 and $5.99 early bird specials. Open from 6am, the Early Bird Specials are good up to 9am.
Service is good, food is good, and the price? Well, $3.99 is mighty hard to beat. ••••• One final tip of the culinary hat goes to Kotija Mexican Taco Shop at 2319 E. Valley Parkway. Several months ago I asked a Mexicana friend of mine where Mexicans went when they wanted good Mexican food. “Kotija” she quickly told me.
I had lunch there once and, indeed, it was quite good. This past Monday evening Evelyn was in a mood for Mexican so we went to Kotija. Exellent! Neither of us could finish our plates as the servings were very generous. We took a

It’s not a fancy place. Food is served cafe style. You order at the counter, they call your name when the meal is ready and you go pick it up.

The author, Barbara Miller, lives in Rancho Carlsbad, where a local farmer has leased property for growing tomatoes. She can note the progress from her kitchen window and is pleased to see the land being used productively. Those hills are going green! Tomayto-Tomahto
Until I ventured into Mexico years ago, the only way I had seen tomatoes grow was in my grandfather's garden, back in Ohio, on the flat. In Mexico not only tomatoes, but corn, beans and lettuce marched up and down hillsides, something like obedient soldiers. Following the hup-two orders of farmers, the plants defied my puny imagination and, in perfect procession, grew on nearly vertical hillsides.
Now, I am seeing something akin to the same scene east of us, on those hills that roll away toward the far reaches of Carlsbad. Their long rowed fingers are full of emerging fruit. It is almost the prettiest phenomenon I have seen here in the last seven years, and it is practically on my front doorstep.
So, gloriosky, the summer looks ultra promising. Well, maybe except that the earth is not the same dark loam of central Illinois, where we spent

*(Pending approval of paperwork by County Registrar of Voters). Heavy Cash Investments in Escondido Election
Escondido Mayor Sam Abed leads the race for Mayor in terms of cash raised, according to recently filed campaign disclosure statements. Abed, looking for his second fouryear term as mayor, shows $216,000 in his campaign war chest compared to $195,001 for his chief competitor, Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz. Diaz has a cash balance of $62,108.
Abed said he expects to raise a quarter of a million dollars for his campaign, far exceeding the most ever raised by a mayoral candidate in the city. He said he will spend the money appealing directly to voters in a variety of ways including mailers, signs, emails and robocalls and via social media.
Diaz has already exceeded her goal of raising $100,000. She points out “Escondido races

have gotten a bit more expensive every year but I’m right on target with my number for what I plan to do.”
Diaz’s largest contributors are William Pickens, CEO of Pool Covers Inc. ($4,000); and the Coalition of Escondido Manufactured Home Voters PAC, ($2,000). Among the largest contributors to Abed are George Hage, CEO of Hitron USA, a security systems consulting company ($4,000); and the Associated Builders and Contractors PAC ($2,600).
This is the first time that Escondido voters will elect council members by geographic region with District’s 1 (the city’s Latino-majority urban core) and District 2 (which encompasses the northern and northwestern part of the city) in play this year. Ed Gallo, running in District 1 shows he has raised more than $33,000 and has an ending cash balance of $32,827.
Consuela Martinez has raised more than $17,000 and has a ending cash balance of $9,308.

Without New Law, Gas Prices Set to Rise in 2015
There are two weeks left in the 2013-14 session, and many pending policy decisions that will determine the outlook for 2015. One proposal should be our top priority, a bipartisan bill that delays an increase on gas prices in California.
AB 69 will postpone the of impacts negative California’s environmental law AB 32, a measure that levied drastic regulations on businesses and has allowed the California Air Resources Board to raise gas taxes at the expense of low- and middle-income families.
Come January, gas prices could increase by as much as 75 cents per gallon.

This would impact businesses, raise monthly gas expenses for families, and have a ripple effect on the price of all products and services in California.
With AB 69, the tax increase would be delayed for three years, although I believe gasoline should be permanently exempted from CARB’s regulations. Higher gas prices will hurt California’s economy and taxpayers. Our state already has the second highest gas tax in the nation. Californians deserve the relief this bill would provide.

The legislative record is also a mixed bag. The majority party has continued to move bills forward that undermine the Second Amendment, including Senate Bill 53 which will require a license
Obviously, a great deal of work remains, including final votes on hundreds of bills. All of this must take place before the 2014 session ends August 31. I’m looking forward to a very busy month in Sacramento.
Time For a Partial Review
The Legislature passed a budget in June, largely along party lines. While General Fund spending is balanced, I was compelled to vote against the budget for a variety of reasons. These include the cap placed on school reserves, failure to adequately reimburse Medi-Cal care providers at a time of increased enrollment, continued funding for the bullet train and the relatively small amount allocated toward repayment of our massive state debt.
Proposals to change the $11.1 billion water bond scheduled for the November ballot have bogged down. In addition to concerns about the measure’s overall cost, major issues under discussion include calls for more water storage capacity in Southern California, which I strongly support. The debate will continue during August, with the final deadline to replace the existing bond rapidly approaching.

Appointed-Councilman Masson’s campaign contributions show the power of incumbency.
At the time Mr. Masson applied to fill the Council seat vacated by Marie Waldron, many noted that he had never run for Council yet had repeatedly applied when a seat came available. He understood that running a campaign was hard work and so chose to go the other route. Now, he has the advantage of running as a member of the Council, which has given him some name recognition as well as helped to forge relationships with individuals and businesses that have the money to support candidates.
Contributions to his campaign for the first half of 2014 are much like those reported for 2013, with most of it coming from people involved with development. He bested all the other candidates throughout the City for contributions of $4100, the largest dollar amount allowed by law. He had three at $4,100, which accounted for 59% of all his contributions for 2014. One was a business contribution for that amount which I assume Concordia/Safari from came Highlands Ranch. (The company listed is CH Adobe LLC, but the Solana Beach address matches that Highlands Concordia/Safari of Ranch.) He received that contribution on January 16. On April 23 Councilman Masson was one of the four Councilmen who voted to allow Safari Highlands Ranch to pursue
Nicole Downey came in second with campaign contributions of $7,039 which included an in-kind contribution of $4,100 (maximum allowed) from Ice-Plex for advertising. Funds and in-kind contributions were spent on campaign materials, events and advertising. Rick Paul received a total of $625 from six contributors, spending $93 on filing fee and HIstory Center booth rental. Chad Hunziker entered the race after June 30, 2014 so he did not file a report. None of these candidates received any money from developers. Going forward, appointed Councilman Masson has an impressive financial lead with $45,550 available as of July 1. You can reach him via his website. Ms. Downey begins the second half of the year with a cash balance of $46. You can reach her via her website or Facebook. Mr. Paul has $1,200. available.

The ‘Wild” Father of U.S. Intelligence
While the United States had spies as far back as the Revolutionary War, things didn’t get tightly organized until just before World War II. Army Col. William J. “Wild Bill” Donovan organized the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).He is recognized as the "Father of American Intelligence services.”
Born in 1883, Donovan held a number of positions as soldier, lawyer, diplomat, but most
famously he was an intelligence officer. A decorated veteran of World War I, Donovan is the only person to have received all four of the United States' highest awards: The Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Distinguished Service Medal, and the National Security Medal. Donovan was a football star at Columbia University where he was known as "Wild Bill.” Previously to World War II, Donovan traveled extensively in Europe and met with foreign leaders including Benito Mussolini of Italy. Donovan’s belief a second major war was inevitable earned him the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Germany's invasion of Poland in September 1939, was an action Donovan had predicted. Accordingly, Roosevelt gave him a number of increasingly important assignments as the U.S. prepared for war.
During 1940-41, Donovan traveled to England to assess Britain's ability to defend against Germany's aggression. Donovan met with Winston Churchill and the various directors of Britain's intelligence services. He returned to

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written direct-ly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herni-ated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mecha-nism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and re-pair. The best part of the treat-ment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while un-dergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

the U.S. confident of Britain's chances and developing plans for an American intelligence service modeled on the British Secret Services.
At the time, America's foreign intelligence organizations were fragmented and isolated from each other. The Army, Navy, Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Department of State, and other interests each ran their own intelligence operations, the results of which was a reluctance to share information.
The Office of Strategic Services was established by Roosevelt on June 13, 1942, charged to collect and analyze strategic information required by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and to conduct special operations. During the War, the OSS grew to nearly 24,000 people. Donovan’s OSS eventually conducted successful espionage and sabotage operations in Europe and parts of Asia.
At the end of the War, Donovan focused on preserving the OSS. As a result of President Roosevelt's death, Donovan's political position, was substantially weakened. Although he argued forcefully for the OSS's retention, Donovan was opposed by many, including President Harry S. Truman, who personally disliked Donovan, and J.Edgar Hoover, who saw Donovan as a threat to the FBI. Accordingly, Truman officially disbanded the OSS in September 1945, a month after Japan surrendered. For many years the operations of the OSS remained secret, but by the 1970s and 1980s, significant parts of the OSS exploits were declassified resulting in it becoming fodder for books and movies.
Having led the OSS during wartime, Donovan’s opinion was influential in forming a new service. He argued the new agency should be able to conduct covert action. Truman didn’t like that aspect, but Donovan won the argument and it was reflected in the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949. Maj. Gen. William “Wild Bill” Donovan, one of America’s most-decorated soldiers and civil servants, will be most remembered not only for his wartime covert actions, but his contributions in developing America’s present-day CIA.
Donovan died Feb. 8, 1959, of dementia, sadly, unable to remember his fascinating life. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
Harold: Sweet, Loving and Shy.
Harold is a 2-3 year old Lab, Shepherd, Chow mix.
Harold was rescued by the Puppy Coalition Foundation of Escondido from the San Bernardino City Shelter and is a very sweet dog that can fit in with any family or group. Harold eagerly demonstrates his appreciation to all who show him kindness. He was neglected and abused in his prior life but is now healthy and happy. He is good with people and other dogs. He would make a spectacular pal and companion. He is pretty unexcitable and low key which would be great for many families and particularly those who are not interested in a high energy puppy to keep up with. Harold is about 50 pounds and will be neutered 8/15/2014. His only re-homing fee is his cost of neutering and vaccinations to bring him current. (Roughly $250). If you are interested call Bruce at 760-612-9156.

Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside How to Be Rich
We live in a world where everyone wants to get rich, while almost nobody feels rich. Maybe that’s the wrong approach. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Oceanside’s average household income is $61,181. A family at that level is part of the .2% richest people in the world. Instead of wanting to be rich, maybe we should learn to be rich. That’s why New Song Community Church will be hosting a sermon series called How to Be Rich, starting the weekend of September 13/14.
From September 13/14 through October 4/5, New Song will cover this topic in four helpful, practical messages: - 7 Ways to Get Rich - You’re Already Richer than You Think - The Consumption Assumption - Greater Gain
If you’d like to learn where you stand on the scale of global riches, check out http://www.globalrichlist.com/. It will rank your income and surprise you! New Song’s goal is to serve the people of Oceanside, Bonsall, and surrounding areas with practical help from above.

Town Hall meetings are a good way to give residents an opportunity to express their opinions and discuss their concerns in a less formal environment than regular council meetings. In fulfillment of one of my campaign promises, I have held seven Town Hall meetings since 2011. My next town hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 27, 2014, at 4:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 201 N. Broadway. The meeting format will start with a brief city update, followed by an open
question and answer period on any topic relating to local government. This is your opportunity to share your views on the issues facing our community and to discuss any subject that matters to you or your business. Our staff will follow up on issues not addressed during the meeting. The meeting will also be videotaped and rebroadcast the following Sunday and Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. on Cox. Ch.19 and AT&T U-Verse Ch. 99. I encourage you to attend and participate in the discussion, or even just say hello and introduce yourself. Working together we can help Escondido become a better city.

August is the second anniversary of Windows 8. By now it is common knowledge that Win 8 has become the biggest flop in Microsoft’s checkered past. By its second birthday the muchreviled Vista operating system had nearly 20% of the PC OS market. Today Win 8’s market share stands at under 13%. Windows 7s market share continues to grow past 50% as businesses and an increasing number of home buyers opt for Win 7 when buying new PCs. Business and home users upgrading from Win XP and Vista universally choose Windows 7 instead of Win 8. Throughout the slow economic recovery corporate purchases of
These 27 Tips Give You The Edge When Selling Your Home
San Marcos - Because your home may well be your largest asset, selling it is probably one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. And once you have made that decision, you'll want to sell your home for the highest price in the shortest time possible without compromising your sanity. Before you place your home on the market, here's a way to help you to be as prepared as possible.
To assist homesellers, a new industry report has just been released called "27 Valuable Tips That You Should Know to Get Your Home Sold Fast and for Top Dollar." It tackles the important issues you need to know to make your home competitive in today's tough, aggressive marketplace.
Through these 27 tips you will discover how to protect and capitalize on your most important investment, reduce stress, be in control of your situation, and make the best profit possible. In this report you'll discover how to avoid financial disappointment or worse, a financial disaster when selling your home. Using a common-sense approach, you will get the
new Windows 7 PCs continue to be strong. This growth has been more than offset by a drop in the sale of new PCs by retailers. Microsoft has largely banned the sale of Win 7 PCs in retail stores where small business and home users usually buy new PCs. The result has been a 25% drop in retail sales as users avoid Win 8 by shopping online, buying from local PC builders or by simply hanging on or upgrading their old PCs. Last week Dell announced it was pulling out of retail stores to concentrate on selling online where they can sell Win 7 PCs.
As of August the market share figures for OS are: Win 7-52%, Win XP-24%, Win 8/8.1-13%, Vista-3%, Apple and all others8%.
penetration is stagnant at 3%. Google’s Android OS continues to grow its dominance in the smart phone/tablet business by stripping business away from Apple. Android dominates worldwide with over 80% of the market to Apples 10 to 15%. Even in America, where the Apple cult still has strength, Apples market share continues to erode.
Tablet sales appear to have peaked. Apples iPad sales have stopped growing. While Android based tablets are still taking market share from Apple, demand has slowed significantly. It appears that the tablet fad is fading while notebook PCs are making a comeback.

Miracle Babies exclusive Pavilion Lounge & Luncheon tickets are $125 each. “We’re truly honored to be the beneficiary of this prestigious event and celebration,” said Sean Daneshmand, M.D., founder of Miracle Babies. “Many mothers of premature or critically ill newborns are financially unable to be at the hospital with their babies every day,” he said. “We founded Miracle Babies to provide support and financial assistance to parents who find themselves in such situations.” The Polo Club event features two competitive matches, entertainment, and more.

While Apple continues to lose market share it is hard to feel sorry for them. Losing share in a business that is growing as fast as smart phones doesn’t hurt that much. For example Samsung’s smart phone market share slipped from 32% to 25% while their sales grew 40%.
Microsoft is racing to replace the floundering Windows 8 but don’t expect to see Windows 9.0 for at least another year. Even then users will want to avoid it for the first six months to a year while Microsoft exterminates the roaches. Windows 7 is the new XP and we predict it will be the dominant OS for the next five years.
The rush to dump Windows XP caused by Microsoft’s end of support in April has slowed as users found that nothing really changed. The most noticeable artifact of Microsoft’s end of support for XP users has been the absence of those constant and annoying Windows updates. The real reason for Windows 8 was of course to force feed Microsoft’s touch screen “Metro” user interface to the public in the hope that it would help sell Microsoft’s mobile touch screen products. It hasn’t worked. After two years of Win 8 Microsoft’s smart phone and tablet market

Adopt-A-Road" Project Adopted by Bonsall Woman's Club The Bonsall Woman’s Club, under the urging and leadership of Arlene Rutherford, Conservation Chair, was encouraged by the general membership to enter the "Adopt-A-Road" program. A designated 2-mile stretch of road was eventually approved and the club began its quarterly pick up along Camino Del Rey (between Highway 76 and I-15). The club recently completed its second ‘clean up’. It was surprising how much trash was picked up; a total of 9
garbage bags were collected. Arlene was instrumental in getting the safety vests and Easy-Reachers for pick up. This quarterly cleanup crew consisted of Pat Harvey, Arlene Rutherford, Phyllis Zenz, Claudia LaBarge, Marcia Sawyer, Linda van der Plaats, Bev York, and Gail Golden. Adopt-A-Road designates certain road sections for private assistance with litter removal. If you, your group, club, or organization wish to participate in this program, contact your local Department of Public Works who will provide trash bags and orange safety vests.

memory problems. Our population is getting heavier and it is well known that there is a direct link between excessive weight gain and the onset and severity of OSA. Other factors that lead to OSA are smoking, drinking alcohol especially before bed, being 40 or older, large neck size, hyperglossia (having a large tongue), and having a small airway.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is rising almost exponentially in our population today. People with OSA stop breathing repeatedly for 10 seconds or more during sleep. This occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat collapse causing their airways to close and/or your tongue falls back blocking your airway.
Most of us don't even know we have sleep apnea and only after our bed partner observes us do we become aware a problem exists. If alone, we may often wake suddenly gasping or choking for air. Other symptoms of OSA are chronic snoring, excessive fatigue, difficulty concentrating, depression, irritability, headaches, learning difficulties, and
If unchecked, OSA may cause job impairment and/or falling asleep while driving. It can also lead to stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. "Drowsy driving" is a common risk in sleep apnea. Those of us with moderate to severe OSA are 15 times more likely to have a traffic accident. This study also showed that after being treated for sleep apnea with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment or oral appliances, that number was greatly reduced. Who you gonna call? Most of us see our dentist more often than our physicians because we have cleanings and exams on a regular basis, usually at least every 6 months. As your dentist, we primarily focus on your oral health and during our examinations we observe your airway openings and
routes of air exchange more closely than a physician might, since their examination must cover the whole body. We also ask certain questions, recommended by the American Sleep Apnea Association, that help us screen for those patients who might have OSA. If your responses along with our examination suggest you have OSA, we'll refer you to your doctor with the recommendation that you have an overnight sleep study done. This study monitors the physiological changes that you go through during sleeping, and detects the level of severity of your OSA, if it exists.
Treatment for OSA can either be done with 1) Using Oral Appliances worn at night to keep your airway open, 2) Using a CPAP machine that
blows air into your airway to keep it open, or 3) Having surgery to remove tonsils, excessive tissue, or shift the lower jaw and tongue forward and open your airway. Currently, a 4th uses orthodontic appliances that reform and expand your oral cavity allowing more air exchange (ie. DNA System).
Many dentists now examine for and treat OSA, and our patients have had great results. One recent case was with a retired engineer who returned saying "Man, I'm glad you solved my tiredness problem. I had been so exhausted and now I feel so much better... you've really made a difference in my life." He also lost 50+ pounds... his wife was elated!
